Easy Buttercream Frosting – 3-Ingredient Recipe to decorate your cakes and cupcakes.
Basic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Yield 4 cups
- 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks; 226 g)
- 3 cups confectioners’ sugar (375 g)
- 2 tablespoons whole milk (30 ml)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, optional
In a mixing bowl add in butter and half of the confectioners’ sugar.
On a medium speed, blend until smooth. Today I am using a paddle attachment.
Then add in vanilla extract, remaining confectioners’ sugar, and milk and beat until creamy. Add more milk or cream if it looks too thick.
It seems good: It should have spreading consistency.
